When you’re looking for advice on weight management or a general health concern, the Internet can be an infinite maze. You’re likely to get a lot of conflicting information on almost any wellness topic.

Who has the time to filter through all this information? And how do you determine if the information is from a credible source?

At Herbalife Nutrition, we believe that every wellness journey you embark on should be based on sound nutrition knowledge. And this is exactly why we work closely with our team of experts to develop educational materials that are available to entrepreneurs who undertake the Herbalife Nutrition business to help them be more informed coaches to their customers.

Making Nutrition Education Readily Accessible

Every customer’s needs are unique, resulting in a variety of questions ranging from the role of protein in the diet to understanding how dietary supplements can complement nutrition and fitness plans. This is why it’s so important to not only educate independent small business owners on nutrition essentials but provide correct knowledge and information at the point of need.

A mobile-first interactive training application is one way that Herbalife Nutrition is ensuring information is readily accessible to distributors. In fact, our mobile learning app recently won the highest recognition from the Brandon Hall Group for the category, “Best Advance in Creating an Extended Enterprise Learning Program.”

Excellence in Learning Award

This accolade from a third-party research firm underlines the value of equipping our independent distributors with interactive, nutrition education that they can share with their communities.

On-demand resources are also available through Herbalife Nutrition customer support portals and blogs.

Entrepreneurs can easily access basic nutrition information through educational materials that have been created by a team of Herbalife Nutrition experts, including registered dietitians, and medical doctors, on topics such as:

Going Beyond Education: The Power of Coaching

Herbalife Nutrition entrepreneurs serve as coaches to their customers and their support is having a transformative effect in their lives. This high-touch personal relationship is critical in helping customers to reach their wellness goals. Accurate knowledge is necessary but understanding the individual’s life story and the context for their goals creates a more powerful approach for lasting change.

Entrepreneurs are lifelong learners and our team of experts are partners to support that learning.  From behavioral change, sports performance, to nutrition and weight loss, we work together to develop the educational tools and learning platforms to ensure we provide ongoing training that delivers the best-in-class customer experience tailored to each individual’s needs.

The Significance of Getting Reliable Nutrition Information

Herbalife Nutrition’s in-house experts and consultants act as trusted resources in many areas, including healthy eating, sports nutrition, health and wellness, and fitness.
